Daredevil

Episode 1.01: Into the Ring

Dialogue

"Perhaps this would be easier if you told me what you've done."
"I'm not seeking penance for what I've done, Father. I'm asking forgiveness, for what I'm about to do."
"That's not how this works. What exactly are you going to do?"
Lantom and Matt Murdock[src]
"All right, I'm just gonna say this once, and we can move on. You don't necessarily have the best judgement when beautiful women are involved, Matt."
"How would I even know if she's a beautiful woman?"
"I don't know. It's kinda spooky, actually. But if there's a stunning woman with questionable character in the room, Matt Murdock's gonna find her and Foggy Nelson is gonna suffer."
Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock[src]
"Can I ask a personal question?"
"I haven't always been blind."
"I guess that's what everyone wants to know."
"That or, "How do you comb your hair?""
"How do you comb your hair?"
"Honestly, you just-- You hope for the best."
Karen Page and Matt Murdock[src]
"How did it happen?"
"Car accident. When I was nine."
"Must have been rough."
"No. I made it through."
"Do you remember what it was like... To... to see?"
"I, um... Yes, I remember."
"I can't imagine what that must be like."
"You know, I'm supposed to say I don't miss it. That's what they teach you in trauma recovery. Define yourself by what you have, value the differences, make no apologies for what you lack. And that's all true for the most part... but it doesn't change the fact that I... I'd give anything to see the sky one more time."
Karen Page and Matt Murdock[src]

Spoken by Matt Murdock

"Thing about red, they can't tell how much you're bleeding."
―Matt Murdock to Jack Murdock[src]

―Daredevil to Semyon[src]

Dialogue

"Okay I find a guy in a dumpster who turns out to be some kind of blind vigilante who can do all this really weird shit, like smell cologne through walls and sense whether someone unconscious or faking it. Slap on-top of that he can take an unbelievable amount of punishment without one damn complaint."
"The last part's just Catholicism."
Claire Temple and Matt Murdock[src]

Spoken by Matt Murdock

"How much longer before innocent people start getting caught in his cross-fire?"
―Matt Murdock to Melvin Potter[src]

Dialogue

"Blood is being shed, Foggy."
"And you've donated more than your fair share to the cause."
―Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson[src]
"You think, uh you think he's crazy?"
"Uh, the Punisher? No. I think he was inevitable."
"Inevitable? How so?"
"Maybe... maybe we created him. All of us. The moment that we let Daredevil, or the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, or whatever it is-"
"There's... there's no connection."
"Well, actually, I think it's a pretty straight line, Matt. Daredevil practiced vigilante justice in our backyard and we applauded him for it. I know that I did. And we never stopped to think that maybe... his actions could open the door for men like this. Men men with guns. Men who think that the law belongs to them."
―Matt Murdock and Karen Page[src]

Episode 2.03: New York's Finest

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"They say you don't hear the bullet that gets you. Always thought that sounded like a bunch of bullshit to me. How about you, Red? When I cracked off your forehead the other night did you hear that?"
Punisher to Daredevil[src]
"You know what I think of you, hero? I think you're a half-measure. I think you're a man who can't finish the job. I think that you're a coward."
Punisher to Daredevil[src]
"You know, you're one bad day away from being me."
Punisher to Daredevil[src]
"Look, I care about our friend. I believe in what he's doing, I believe the city needs him."
Claire Temple to Foggy Nelson[src]

Dialogue

"Why didn't you take my mask off?"
"Don't give a shit about who you are."
"You killed everyone else. Why am I still alive? Huh? I got in your way twice now... and you don't strike me as someone who just lets that happen."
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"Military grade hardware. You seem to know your way around it. And you sure carry yourself like a soldier. What are you gonna do with all this?"
"I'll do what's required."
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"I'm guessing you've done this, what ten, maybe 20 times? How long's it been? Six months, a year or your whole life? Something tells me you don't take breaks. You know, no one else has to die. You could stop now. Walk away."
"Walk away? Could you do that? Could you walk away?"
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"Where'd they send you?"
"You a shrink, Red? Now, come on, you must be something when you're not wearing the long johns, right?"
"I'm just a guy."
"Yeah? You ever been to war?"
"No."
"Yeah then don't talk about it."
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"You know it can be hard? You run around this city in a pair of little boy's pajamas and a mask. You go home at night, right? Take that mask off, maybe you think it wasn't you who did those things, maybe it was somebody else. Well, see, soldiers we don't wear masks, yeah? We don't get that privilege."
"You know what I think?"
"What's that?"
"You're still at war."
"Oh, for crying out loud."
Punisher and Daredevil[src]
"Why am I here?"
"Everything you do out there in the streets, Red, it doesn't work. Did you know that?"
"Oh, and what you're doing is better?"
"What I do, I just do. It's out of necessity."
"Come on. You know you're not the only one, right? Who did you lose? Huh? Was it someone you loved? Well, boo-hoo. Let me tell you something, buddy. Everybody's lost someone. Doesn't mean you have to do this."
"Well, loss doesn't work the same for everybody, Red."
"Yeah, that's right. It's clearly not working for you."
"Maybe not. We don't get to pick the things that fix us, Red. Make us whole. Make us feel purpose. My moment of clarity? It came from the strangest of places. What kind of name is The Devil of Hell's Kitchen, anyway? I mean, really?"
"I didn't ask for that name."
"I'm sorry, I don't see you running from it."
"I don't do this to hurt people."
"Yeah, so what is that, just a job perk?"
"I don't kill anyone."
"Is that why you think you're better than me?"
"No."
"Is that why you think you're a big hero?"
"It doesn't matter what I think or what I am. People don't have to die."
"Come on, Red. You believe that?"
"I believe it's not my call, and it ain't yours either."
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"I'm not a bad guy, Red."
"You wanna explain that to the orphans and the widows of the men you killed?"
"For Christ's sake, that's what you think? I'm just some crazy asshole going around unloading on whoever I want to?"
"Yeah, that's exactly what I think."
"That it?"
"You think you're anything else?"
"I think that the people I kill need killing, that's what I think."
"You left men hanging from meat hooks!"
"They got off easy, in my opinion."
"You shot up a hospital."
"Yeah, and nobody got hurt who didn't deserve it."
"Oh, yeah. What about you, Frank? What happens the day someone decides you deserve it?"
"I'll tell you what, they better not miss."
"Come on, you run around this city like it's your damn shooting gallery."
"Yeah, what do you do? What do you do? You act like it's a playground. You beat up the bullies with your fists. You throw 'em in jail, everybody calls you a hero, right? And then a month, a week, a day later, they're back on the streets doing the same goddamn thing!"
"Yeah, so you just put 'em in the morgue."
"You're goddamn right, I do."
"You ever doubt yourself, Frank?"
"Not even for a second."
"Really? Really? You never think for one second, "Shit, I just killed a human being"."
"That's being pretty generous."
"A human being who did a lot of stupid shit, maybe even evil, but had one small piece of goodness in him. Maybe just a scrap, Frank, but something. And then you come along, and that one tiny flicker of light gets snuffed out forever."
Punisher and Daredevil[src]
"Look around, Red. This city, it stinks. It's a sewer. It stinks and it smells like shit and I can't get the stink out of my nose. I think that this world, it needs men who are willing to make the hard call. I think you and me are the same!"
"That's bullshit, Frank, and you know it!"
"Only I do the one thing you can't. You hit'em and they get back up. I hit'em and they stay down!"
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"You still think this piece of shit is worth saving."
"I'm not gonna shoot him."
"Yeah, okay, I will, if you don't kill me first."
Punisher and Daredevil[src]
"Take the shot, Red, take the shot."
"No."
"You don't do it, his death's on you. Either way, you're a killer."
"What kind of choice is that?"
"The kind I make every time I pull the trigger. The kind I'm gonna make right now."
Punisher and Daredevil[src]

Dialogue

"Sometimes I think you just might really be the devil."
"Sometimes I think I might be, too."
Punisher and Daredevil[src]
"There's a new man in town, he's, uh killing people in cold blood."

"Yeah, I did everything I could to uh, protect my client."
"That work is done, Matthew."
"Because I failed."
"At least you tried."
"Well, like you said, his life had value."
"A whole world's been lost and others are dying one after the other Matthew, what are you looking for?"
"Forgiveness."
"For what?"
"Uh not doing more?"
"You just said you did everything you could. If you're the man I understand you to be, I'm sure that's true."
"Then why do I still feel guilty?"
"Guilt can be a good thing. It's the soul's call to action. The indication that something is wrong. The only way to rid your heart of it is to correct your mistakes and keep going until amends are made. I don't know what you didn't do or what you should have done but the guilt the guilt means your work is not yet finished."
